Many of the people I work with come to me feeling “different” or “weird” and afraid of expressing their interests and spirituality to their partner because they’re afraid of being rejected for it. Or maybe they wish that their partner could be more similar in their spiritual beliefs, but they’re having a hard time relating in that way.
So today on the Belonging podcast, I’m sharing a conversation I had with my husband, Tim, about building a life and relationship together as two extremely different people. We talk about what Tim thinks about all my “witchy stuff,” how we communicate, how I’ve slowly introduced Tim to my spiritual/seasonal/ancestral ways, and how Tim suggests approaching your partner (or anyone!) who might initially be resistant to the witchy ways.
“If you think your partner is close-minded, they might just be scared.” -Tim Piastrelli
How do you relate to your partner or loved ones who don’t exactly hold your same beliefs?
